30Turbo Diesel With Side Gunner Seat: 1996 Toyota Granvia G

The JDM Nissan posted early today was just the first shot of Tokyo Tuesday, so we’ve got another JDM special coming at you. YES, this is a Toyota Granvia. A HiAce based semi-bonneted van with a sweet rotating passenger seat that allows easy access for belting/unbelting the kids, or you can even lower it out into oncoming traffic if the little bastards get too lippy. Would also be a fantastic side gunner seat for your drive-by needs if you are into that sort of thing. I’m guess that’s what the “G” is for. Also comes with a 3.0 liter turbo diesel and a Cool & Hot Box option. Find this 1996 Toyota Granvia G offered for $9900 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist.
